Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl by Harriet A. Jacobs
Book DescriptionOne of hundreds of slave narratives published just before the Civil War, this account is unique in that it is written by a woman. This offers a different, perhaps more realistic, perspective on slave experience than that presented in the more typical 'heroic' male narrative. The work is notable for its blending and manipulation of several narrative techniques, including those of the sentimental novel, of autobiography, and of the classical slave narrative.

UK Kirkus Review » One of the few existing autobiographies of a female slave, this presents a unique perspective on the complex plight of the black woman as slave and as writer. 'I was born a slave; but I never knew it till six years of happy childhood had passed away,' begins Jacobs's fascinating autobiography. Full of telling detail, simple yet insightful, it charts the ups and downs of her precarious existence from girlhood to eventual freedom. (Kirkus UK)
